Q: Can I, put a weight bar on Model ST22LE? I have cab on.
by Gary from Wisconsin on February 10, 2013

A: Gary - The Ariens ST22LE will not accommodate a front weight kit.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: I'm looking for an Ariens 2 Stage gas snowblower, preferably with a Briggs and Stratton engine, OHV, and at least 7-8 HP. I'd like to have an electric start option, with a pull cord for manual starting. I would prefer to have a manual chute, and am not interested in extras like the hand warmers or the headlight. I would go as small as a 22", or as large as 26". I'd probably rather go with a 22" or 24", as long as I was still able to get the 7-8 HP.

Can you recommend a model that would fit what I'm looking for?

by Anonymous from Iowa on August 05, 2011

A: Your best option is going to be the Deluxe 24" from Ariens. This is going to have about a 8.25 HP engine. It would also have the manual chute control. It would have a headlight, but none of the other options you don't care about. This would also have electric start as well as recoil. This would be a 120V electric start. Take a look at model 921031.

Well to start off with, my snow blower was on its way earlier than I expected which is a good thing. I really did not get to use it yet but I tried it out on some leftover snow from a couple of days ago. The only problem so far is the plug for the light.

The customer service from Snow Blower Direct was 100% outstanding, I just wish all companies would do the same. The freight company was just as good. Keep up the good customer service . The snow blower itself is high quality craftsmanship... more

Happy Customer
I just bought one of the last three of this model before it was discontinued. The online ordering process with Snow Blowers Direct was easy and painless. They had it delivered intact and on time as promised.

Setting up my new snowblower out of the box was simple and straight-forward, and I was very satisfied with the quality and appearance of my new machine. I added about a cup of oil to the engine crankcase and a little gas to the tank to test it out. I gave the engine four primes... more

Have not had a deep snow here in the mountains of Georgia but have had a mix of ice and snow. The chute will freeze up and make it hard to discharge. Also when changing the oil there is no outlet to attache a tube to keep the oil from running down the side of the engine.

Other than these few problems I am very happy with this Snow Blower, now just need some deep snow.

Best Snow Blower
The blower was delivered as per the promise and trucking company was kind enough to unload at no cost to me. I opened it and it took me 10 minutes to assemble it and off I went. I had 17 inches of snow and the blower did a good job in throwing the snow off my drive way to about 30 feet with little assistance. The problem I had was when I had to clear the snow where the snow plow had left a 4 x 3 ft of snow at the edge of my drive way. I was able to clear 10" of the snow mountain at a... more

Ariens Snow Blower Smoothly Delivered
All the way from the initial on-line purchase to the delivery at my front door step went smoothly. I received awesome updated emails of the status of the where abouts of my snow blower, so I knew almost exactly when it would arrive. The assembly out of the box was quick and easy. I put gas in, pulled the start handle three times and it started right up! I like the turtle/rabbit symbols on the gear handle cover. Reminds be of some of my coworkers, some move like turtles, some move like... more

It Does The Job
I have resisted buying a 2 stage for 20+ years. I kept thinking my property didn't need it. Lately the snows are getting heavy and big! So I dumped the single stage that never worked and ordered the Ariens! WOW after an hour to put it together, it started right up and hasn't stopped or been stopped since. All of the features work like they should and it is super maneuverable!
I am glad I made the purchase and should have done it years ago.

The delivery came early. I was told the unit would... more

Great 920012 Purchase
A couple of weeks ago I bought the above snowblower. Even though it was done over the internet, the experience was pretty painless. It was shipped within 2 days of the order placement and arrived just a few days later.

Only 3 parts were required to be assembled for it's use. They are: HANDLE BARS, LIGHT ATTACHMENT & THROWER CHUTE. I had a question after it arrived and my call was returned promptly.

The blower itself is great. All quality parts, runs smoothly and is much... more

Quality & Value
I compared this product to a lot of others and realized the all metal design, joystick type, chute director and powerful engine, coupled with a good warranty & electric assist was a safe purchase.

WELL I LOVE IT! I was concerned about a back-order ship date no sooner than Dec. 27,2010 so I called to see how realistic that projected date was. The honest answer was that it was pretty close. I couldn't believe they actually DELIVERED it Dec 23! I had no assembly problems,and there are... more

A Back Saver!
My wife bought this for me telling me that shoveling our driveway every time it snowed was not worth aggravating my back condition. This snow blower arrived just after our first winter blizzard of 26-inches. Let's just say that my back needed this snowblower because we've had two major snow storms since its arrival!

What a compact powerhouse! Its self-propelled wheels help tremendously on our driveway, which is on a steep incline. I had some questions about our state's percentage of ethanol... more

Bad Experience With Rep From Ariens
Watch out for Ariens! Don’t believe all the reviews that state they are a great company to work with. In my case they are not standing behind their product, a 22” two stage Snow Blower. In November of 2010, I purchased above model from local Home Depot. I bought it early in the season so that it would be available to me when I needed it. Salesperson said,” This will be the first model that will sell out”.

The very first time I used it, December 2010, the snow was several inches deep,... more

New Ariens
My Ariens snow blower arrived in 6 days from Snow Blower Direct. I thought that was a long time from Illinois to Minnesota. I proceeded to install brackets and other loose hardware that came with the blower. The assembly was not difficult. I was missing some misc hardware, but the worst item was the decal on the dash panel is already coming off. I feel this was probably due to a wet panel when the decal was installed. Hopefully no other customer has this problem
